I am happy to announce.....the sale was a success!!

Today, I am posting a couple of my favorites, that are still available.

French Country Lavender painting by Karen Tarlton palette knife impressionism

 12x12
French Country Lavender

The above painting was inspired by my recent trip to Burgundy
region of France.
Such light there that you can't see in the photos but I display
in my painting and such a calm, peaceful place.
Lovely and plenty of wine and "proper" cheese with each meal :)



Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Seascape, "Pacific Blue" 4x12" SOLD

Most of my seascapes are from the Atlantic, or the Caribbean, but today I am visiting the Pacific.

Purchase here
SOLD

My reference photo was taken a few years ago on a trip to California with my daughter and granddaughter. We were in San Francisco most of the trip, but one afternoon we drove south to Half Moon Bay.



For us east coasters, the Pacific was an untamed beast, quite different from our usually gentle Atlantic.  Just that fact that we were peering down from a cliff and that the brave souls who ventured to the beach were all ON THE SHORE was foreign.  Not that we do not have sunbathers on the shore, but there are ALWAYS bathers or surfers in the water, even on the coldest of days.


I decided to use a palette knife on this scene to help capture the power  and texture.

"La Bellieuse" by Lynda Cookson

"La Bellieuse" is the name of the old farm house my Loney ancestors used to live in in St Martin, Guernsey. We visited there recently, enjoying ourselves stirring up the ghosts and ancient family stories. Of course I had to paint the house!

"La Bellieuse" by Lynda Cookson 

As a warm-up I painted a watercolour study of the front door
and a charcoal sketch of a different view of the house

Small Landscape Painting, Cabin in the Woods, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" oil on panel

This is a small painting I did last fall.  We have moved from Florida to North Carolina, and this one was overlooked in the craziness of an interstate move.   Deep breath......it is all over now!

Purchase here

I often passed this cabin, on my daily walks.  I am always inspired by the beauty surrounding me during my walks.  The cabin looked so charming, nestled in the trees, with spots of sunlight hitting it.  

This piece is a combination of brush and palette knife.

I have gone without painting for several months due to my move.  I am anxious to return to my new (small) studio, and begin this new version of my daily routine.  I hope I remember how to paint!

Thanks for viewing!

Coneflower Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Oil on Panel

We spent the month of April in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  It was winter-like when we arrived on April 1st, but within days the trees were covered in blooms.  Flowering pear and crabapple, dogwood, lilac and forsythia were visible everywhere.  I did my little Florida heart good to experience such a spring.

It was too early for one of my favorites from the mountains....coneflowers (echinacea).  I had lots of images from previous trips and painted several based on this favorite flower.


purchase print here


Just a simple little painting, but it pleases me.

It's the small things in life that make it worth living.  This week, for me, it was enjoying a peacful trip to the mountains.

I hope you find your peace this week.

Horse Portrait, "Big Red" 6x8" Oil, SOLD

I have been trying to expand my horizons by painting new subject matter.  This is my second horse painting.


SOLD
I have to say I did enjoy the challenge.  He looked so spirited and I got excited about his red coat against a green background.


It's always fun to stretch a little, try something new.  I would like to do more of these, but I think my biggest challenge will be getting interesting reference images to work from. We have plenty of horses in our neighborhood, but they usually run to the other end of the pasture when they see me approach with my trusty camera.

Do you have any special techniques for getting images of animals?

What could be more beautiful than a sunset, except maybe a sunset over the sea.


 I knew right away I was going to have to paint this one.


 I used both a brush and a palette knife on this one.....had to get a little texture in there.



I feel like I want a Margarita every time I look at this one....right away I am on island time.

Hope you find a way to relax a little today, too.  Thanks for stopping by today.

Abstract Seascape | Daily Painting | "Tropical Blues" by Carol Schiff | 6x8" Oil SOLD

When I lived close to the sea, I found that it turned up in my painting in both a representative and non-representative form.  I guess this little daily painting falls somewhere between the two.



SOLD

 I painted this with a palette knife.  I like texture and feel it adds additional interest to my art.  I was thinking about the beautiful greens and blues of the tropical waters off the coast of Florida.  Further south they turn the most amazing shades of azure, but that will be another painting.

I almost always show my paintings in black frames.  It would be hard to find an artwork that would not work well with black and it just makes the colors pop.

Fall Landscape Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Autumn Trees, 6x8" Oil on Canvas

I posted this last autumn. How did autumn get here so fast?  Time seems to go faster and faster each year.

purchase here





We have just returned from time in the mountains, rushing home to monitor hurricane season in Florida.  When we return to the mountains, this will be a typical scene.

It is so easy to overdue autumn colors.  Your eye tells you the intense colors are what you are seeing, but when you put it on canvas, it is not believable.  Time to tone it down a touch.  Nature is maybe not quite that bright.

Floral Landscape, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting "Summer Wildflowers", 6x8" Oil on Panel

One of my guilty pleasures, when I am in the Blue Ridge Mountains, is my morning walk, which inspired this painting.


purchase here

 You would have to live a summer or two in Florida, to understand how much I enjoy walking in mid 70's temps in the middle of summer.  

detail

 Of course, I also admire the songbirds and gorgeous, towering, hardwood trees.  It's not really a guilty pleasure, as it is hard work walking 4 miles when at least half of it is up the side of a mountain.




Here's hoping you have a wonderful day.

Wildlife Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, "Gray Squirrel" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil SOLD

Have you ever tried to photograph wildlife?  I have, and consider it an exercise in frustration.  Many blurred images later, my friend and photographer, Ted Fuhrer, offered me the use of his images.  Thanks so much, Ted.

SOLD
This little guy looks very inquisitive and ready to bolt at the least movement.

  I enjoyed experimenting with painting his fur and directing the viewer's eye.  The animal is much the same color as the background in this scene.

 I put it in one of my black frames.  They seem to work perfectly for just about any painting.

Happy day to you!

This is worked with a palette knife.  I enjoy lots of texture, so I left it on this piece.  Maybe it is more of a skyscape?   Maybe it is more abstract or impressionistic?  Whatever it is, it reflects my mood at the time, which I think, is the point of painting.

Landscape Painting, Woodland Cottage, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Oil Painting

This little cottage is on my morning walking route in North Carolina.  I am also attracted to the patterns of light on this little house, snuggled up to the trees.

 The atmosphere is isolated woodlands, but in fact, this is a law office on Main Street in the town of Waynesville, NC.




I hope you all have a wonderful day!

 I have been on quite a flower painting jag lately, and still have more to come.  I spent last April in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and was inspired by the beautiful show from Mother Nature.  Flowers were everywhere, especially the trees and bushes.

Now that I am living there, I cannot stop looking at my stash of photos and painting flowers every day.
